Greenville- Pet Friendly

In dog-friendly Greenville, S.C., expect to find welcome signs, waiting bowls of fresh water and plenty of ear-scratches for your pup. Your beloved pet can find a variety of treats from shops downtown and beyond. And when hunger sets in, Greenville offers many outdoor restaurant patios that are pet-friendly.
Open and outdoor spaces go over the top, Greenville is full of opportunities for activities you and your furry friend will both enjoy. Half the fun of having dogs in our lives is sharing recreational time with them, including play dates at the dog park, camping, and hiking.
With so many playful things to do in Greenville, perfect for you and your four-legged friend, we challenge you to check through this list and plan an outing for each activity.
What's special about a boutique? You can typically find specialty pet goodies that are hard to find at a traditional pet store.
A good pet store will be a local pet shop rather than the pet department of a department store or a local branch of a large chain. Local shops are more likely to stock higher quality products, and also more likely to pay attention to you as an individual customer and to be familiar with your needs.
